Prices dropped at Woolworths

Update: This offer has been extended! It will now end on Sunday 30 November. This is great news if you’re unable to pop into Woolies until the weekend. Okay, first off, I know it’s a while since I posted on this blog. And I appreciate that this post represents a rather jarring change in tone. […]

5th bloggiversary (oh, and Happy New Year)

I usually forget the anniversary of this blog. I think this is for a variety of reasons. Firstly, at this time of year we usually have other festivities on our minds. Also this blog has two major anniversaries in my mind. Moving to doctorvee.co.uk was a watershed, and I am sometimes reluctant to even acknowledge […]

A surprisingly good Christmas

I hope you all managed to have a good Christmas. I have to say, I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed Christmas so much. In recent years I have enjoyed it just as a nice day off with a big meal. But beyond that I didn’t enjoy them much more than a normal day […]

Merry Chrifsmas

Yes, I am a liberal elite atheist trying to ban Christmas, and proud of it! Not really. Everyone else can celebrate it as much as they like as far as I’m concerned. But I don’t celebrate Christmas for religious reasons, and I don’t see any point in pretending otherwise. I am celebrating though. Wintervals are […]

Oh shit, it’s September

I have never really got into student life. Despite the fact that I hate summer, I love the holiday aspect of it. This is not because I am a lazy bum, because in my opinion I have actually been quite busy this summer. And the busiest bit (two weeks in Cumbernauld) was the bit I […]

Predictable

This is what I got my brother for Christmas: This is what my brother got me for Christmas: I guess that’s almost the same as exchanging five pound notes.

Obligatory (?) seasonal Winterval greetings post

Merry Christmas! This blog has almost reached its 2,000th post (since the move over to WordPress two years ago). It recently reached its 3,000th comment. Thanks to all of my readers, commenters and emailiers. I know I never reply to emails, because I’m a lazy bastard, but I like to get emails all the same […]

To Duncan. From the person who always frowns at you

I’m not the biggest fan of Christmas you know. I really don’t mind it at all. I’m not a total Scrooge (who, incidentally, was a fellow Langtonian). There are very good reasons to try and enjoy yourself at this time of year. It’s cold, dark and miserable. What else can you do except make the […]

It never ends

I had my last exam today! Only to turn up to work and find out that I only have three days off between now and Hogmanay. One of which is Christmas Day. Another of which is tomorrow. And I’m working from 0800–1800 on Boxing Day. They’ve obviously never seen what I’m like at that time […]

Look here! It’s a post!

Oh hello, it’s me. Sorry about that silence. I had a scary essay to write, as well as plenty of work. Christmas really is a massive load of shite isn’t it? Anyway, I don’t think my essay was very good. I stayed up until almost 4am on Sunday night writing the essay. Then once I […]
